Phad Thai (Very Simple Version)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MellowMel

This Phad Thai omits the prawns and tofu, but is very delicious nonetheless. This is the easiest recipe to make and has the nice fresh taste of coriander.

Top Review by Chef PotPie

We liked this dish, but I must admit I changed things a bit because my daughter was looking over my shoulder and begging me. I added scrambled egg, shrimp, and peanuts. I know this would be good without those things, but I can't resist my daughter, especially when she's excited about the food I'm cooking. Sorry. I couldn't find Thai chilies, so I used a jalapeno, there is no way in the world to get palm sugar here, so I used some molasses and sugar...No snow pea sprouts, so I used some pea pods...I feel bad that I didn't make this recipe as written. But it was really good anyway!
